DOUGLAS ADAMS - BBC Archive, Service of Celebration

BBC Online has a page devoted to the Douglas Adams - Service of Celebration which was held on 17th September 2001. Douglas Adams' friends and family came together to celebrate his life with a service at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square.

The page includes a number of video tributes, with his family represented by James Thrift, Sue Adams and Jane Garnier. Marvellously, James is one of our recent Gorilla sponsors. Thank you!

The video tributes also include Last Chance To See co-author Mark Carwardine, zoologist and geneticist Richard Dawkins, and Simon Jones, who played Arthur Dent in both the radio and TV versions of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.
